Hire Professors who can actually teach the subject.Quite BrightFinance
Hire Professors who can actually teach the subject. Some people are so boring and unprepared for class. In Business college maybe there are 3 professors who actually were great at teaching, everyone else just do not care. There has to be some kind of teaching standard. I want to get my monies worth, but unfortunately I am about to graduate completely unprepared for the real workforce.

Hello prospective readerBrightFinance
Hello prospective reader
I came all the way from Kuwait to experience the Chicago precived in the movies or its credible reputation online. I think the people in Chicago are retarded( Similar to Tony Blairs wife).

Well upon my arrival at Ohare International life seemed great. Well it is if you own a car and have a life in the city before you arrive.

However since we are talking about the university and not the city it is in, it was the worst experience of my life.

My college of business adminstration was so pathetic that people changed to majors outside of it.Internal college transfers at the college were limited and refraine.

A list came along and rined my life towards the end of fall towards Christmas which was all about missing persons in the Chicago land area and the semester of 2009-2010 must have been the worst because I got a list of 381 students. Why me?Why me? Privacy laws must be fecal in Chicago.

The campus was near the city but the city is useless after 5, Useful to skip classes which was cleverly put by one reviewer. Well this is when all the posers and gangbangers line up all the streets specially two blocks from the Sears(Willis) Tower.

I had cousins in the city who are all married so I had the gruesome task of making friends in this dump of a university which has a decent campus(Better than SIU) but has the organizational skills of a public school(Not to forget its funding is preety bad too). I made most of my friends over at Malcolm X college because this place is that bad. A community college has a capabilities of distributing a It is a commuter college. Do not be fooled. Then again who is so please be selfish with your decision!! I thought I was the biggest commuter there coming from the Middle East but I was overwelmed by the people who topped me.T he professors are hobo's who live in thier cardboard houses and have a day job at this place. For them life is for the lack of a better word,good and the sylabus..............WELL EXTENSIVE(You will be teaching yourself). The best professors are those who understand the hatred towards this place and have joined it out of self pity, or a large amount of change given to them by the largest recruiting black hole of a university in Illinois which sucks the life out of its resident students and creates unemployed state burdens(This place loves rallies and marches for rights they want but do not need). The African American and other connection to the outside world, like the connection to Ohare is what keeps this place alive for me and many others who get on home by bus or train. UIC was not serious with my education or aims in life so I left for Madrid in this fall.Plan ahead if you go to this place or join it to learn life the hardest Way Please visit this placefor yourself and for those who rely on pictures.........I thank you for visiting this site.FINALLY TO THOSE IVE CONVINCED BUT NEED TO ENTERTAIN,PLEASE AVOID THIS SCHOOL(IT IS A GLORIFIED UNIVERSITY) AND AVOID THE MENTAL ANARCHY OF JOINING THIS INSTITUTION.
